SNL's Four Core Tenets
SNL believes leading information providers must adhere to four crucial guiding principles: 1) Accuracy, 2) Relevance, 3) Completeness, 4) Timeliness.
SNL is the only information provider that backs these principles with a guarantee on each piece of published information. To encourage users to report potential issues, SNL pays clients $50 (or makes an equivalent charitable donation) for each error found and reported to SNL Support at 888.275.2822 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our leadership team has infused these core tenets throughout SNL's culture, operations and products.
Data quality is paramount. SNL analysts train in and cover specific sectors. That specialization — combined with a three-tiered data approval process and sophisticated computer applications with thousands of error checks — assures that errors or omissions are trapped and corrected, making SNL the most accurate and trusted source for data and news.
Unlike other information sources, SNL focuses on the unique characteristics of each sector we cover, collecting and disseminating fundamental and M&A data using detailed, sector-specific templates rather than one generic template. This focused approach ensures that our subscribers have access to the raw data, ratios and metrics critical to analyzing these industries.
Every day, SNL's team captures all financial, market and corporate information, news, merger and acquisition activity, and security issuances, as well as company events, sell-side research updates and much more for the companies and industries we cover. Our coverage spans more than 4,000 publicly traded companies and thousands of private companies, making SNL the premier one-stop source for information on our six sectors.
Robust procedures, cutting-edge technology and extensive sources guarantee that SNL's products contain the most timely information in the marketplace. Our databases are updated throughout the day, giving subscribers the most current information possible, often months before less complete data is available from other sources.
